The problem? It's faulty, and we have to exchange it for a new one on Thursday. For some reason when you play a DVD, the sound doesn't work! But, I'll only be big shiny TV-less for a couple of hours, so I guess I'll survive.
Armondo came home with it and started setting it up right away. He didn't buy the wall bracket though, 'cause it was pretty expensive, but he swears he can make one. It's not that bad without the wall bracket though. The buttons are on TOP of the TV, so Cherry can't get at them, and it comes with a strap to secure it to the wall so it doesn't tip.
Up until this point, Cherry hasn't really watched much TV. I have a few episodes of Veggie Tales and Sponge Bob on my computer that she watches now and then, but she's never really had the TV on in front of her. I cut the cable this past summer in hopes of reading more, (umm.. I read ZERO books) and now that the cable's back on, and we've got a new TV, my "No TV for little ones" rule has gone out the window. I'm pleased I was so good for up to a year though! It's going to be much harder to stop the second born from watching TV for sure!
Mind you, the TV is on much more often while Armondo is home than when it's just me. (He's the TV fanatic, I'm the computer fanatic.)
